26th World Scout Jamboree in Poland
Our next World Scout Jamboree will take place from 30 July to 8 August 2027 in Gdańsk, Poland. We are excited to welcome young people and volunteers to this once-in-a-lifetime event.
Bravely is the motto of Jamboree inspires courage, collaboration, and engagement. This motto holds particular significance in Poland, especially in Gdańsk, a city renowned for its association with the historic Solidarity movement. In Gdańsk, let’s be inspired to make a change and take action for our environment!
History of the World Scout Jamboree
Scouting’s founder, Robert Baden-Powell, envisioned a special event open to Scouts from all nationalities. This led to the first World Scout Jamboree, which was held in 1920 at London's Olympia in the United Kingdom. It was attended by 8,000 Scouts from 34 countries. Since then, the World Scout Jamboree has been held every four years and hosted all over the world.
The World Scout Jamboree is an incredible festival of learning and a place for young people and volunteers to build new friendships and skills for life. Look back through photos from the 25th World Scout Jamboree in South Korea.
